Product & Pricing Changes from January 2019

PASSENGERS  who purchase from TravelMaster’s range of multi-operator and multi-modal tickets in South Yorkshire will see a change to the price they pay for their products from the 6th January 2019*.

These changes are being introduced following an extensive price review and in many cases products remain priced less than, or only marginally more than, they or their equivalent products were priced 5 years ago.

For example:

Passengers purchasing the popular CityWide from January 2019 will now only pay 30p more for a 7-Day product (£17.30) than they did in January 2013.

Passengers travelling on any bus in Rotherham, Doncaster or Barnsley will still pay £1.20 less for a 7-Day product (£17.30) than they did for the equivalent product in January 2013 (£18.50).

Passengers travelling anywhere in South Yorkshire on any Bus or Tram will still pay £1.60 less for a 7-Day product (£23.50) than they did for the equivalent product in January 2013 (£25.10).

“It is always a difficult decision to increase the prices of our products and I believe the fact that many still remain less than they were in 2013 reflects this. However, these changes have been introduced ensure that our range remains commercially sustainable and that we, our partners and operators can continue to offer great value multi-operator ticketing for South Yorkshire’s transport users.”

Matt Smallwood, General Manager of TravelMaster

The 6th of January will also see the introduction of 28-Day versions of the popular GetAbout products for Under-18s, priced at £33.20 for all buses & trams and £52.40 for all buses, trams & trains, which will make it easier for parents and guardians to purchase longer duration travel for young people. These will be available to purchase from Ticket Vending Machines located at Interchanges and loaded to smart MegaTravel or 16-18 Travel passes.
